It sure seems like there are going to cheap flights to Hawaii persistently, forever and ever until the end of time. That's not at all true, but there have been almost constant good deals on flights to Hawaii since the calendar flipped to 2020.

With a pile of airlines involved and the possibility that you might have two airlines with close prices, it's worth examining the extras before you buy. Each airline except Alaska will charge you extra for seat selection at the basic economy level. Moreover, United doesn't offer a free full-size carry-on, which is a big deal since every one of these airlines will charge you $30 to check a bag.

But, seriously, at some point, there probably won't be constant flights to Hawaii in the $300 range. If you've been thinking about jumping on a deal like this, heading to Honolulu, and sipping a beer on the beach, this is a pretty good time to make it happen.
